Toyota C-HR Exterior | Toyota C-HR Design & Performance
Born from the ingenuity of a race car driver, C-HR is designed to maximize driving pleasure every time you turn the wheel - whether you're cruising through the city or taking on your favorite winding road. "C-HR" stands for "Coupe High-Rider," despite this little ute's having four doors and riding rather low for a crossover. A turbo 2.0-liter four pumps out 144 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque and sends all power to the front wheels via continuously variable transmission (CVT). The engine employs many of Toyota's latest generation of technologies, including Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and Valvematic, both of which have received extensive optimization to enhance fuel economy and smooth operation.
Stylish, athletic, and tech-filled, the all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR represents a leap forward in design, manufacturing, and engineering for Toyota. When it arrives at dealerships, the C-HR will serve as a solid springboard of excitement, adventure, and pride for its fashion-forward, trendsetting owners. The Toyota C-HR, which, nearly to the tee, carries on the concept's avant-garde physique; modern, comfortable cabin; and bold, outgoing character.
At the C-HR's nose, two narrow projector-beam halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights wrap deep into its strong front shoulders - almost all the way into the front quarter panels. Because of this, the vehicle looks wider than it is, and possesses an assertive fascia that's uncommon to crossovers.
The deep, curvy character lines emerge from a prominent Toyota badge that's flanked by the headlamps, and lead into the narrower core body. They run below the slender windows, and continue above the rear wheel where they marry to a high beltline and distinctive C-Pillar with integrated door handle. The rear is a cohesive melding of its elaborate lines and 3D shapes. The tail lamps protrude outward, and the hatchback - outfitted with a lip spoiler and functional top wing - tapers neatly inboard, adding to the C-HR's futuristic look, and, once more, surprising girth.
